I kind of like Taylor Swift now

(11/09/23 1:06am)

I’ve always had eclectic music tastes. I have only one Spotify playlist, which I’ve stuffed full with everything from death metal to smooth jazz to klezmer music to rap to something I recently discovered called thrash grass. My top four songs are probably “One Piece at a Time,” “California Uber Alles,” “Amos Moses” and “Godzilla.” And right now, my four favorite musicians/bands are Johnny Cash, The Dead Kennedys, The Native Howl and Slipknot (all of whom you should check out, by the way).

Do you really need that master's degree?

(11/27/23 5:00am)

Just like four years ago, for myself and fellow seniors, it is again the time to be incessantly asked what we are to do after graduation. This is, of course, an incredibly annoying question until you have arrived at a satisfying answer. This time, however, the response is not so clear cut: No longer is it as simple as offering the name of a college and receiving a judgment proportional to your questioner’s opinion of the institution. While we broadly could do any number of things next, it tends to boil down to one of two options: entering an applicable industry or continuing to go to school.
